Out of Santorini

Note: This portfolio of  images represents yet another offering via Weekly Hubris of works by photographer Doris Athanassakis. Here, the photographer turns her lens on elements of her analog and demotic world, focusing on the architectural elements, “Aegean cameos,” and whitewash that are Santorini’s visual signature. Athanassakis lives in Imerovigli,  a caldera-side village on the volcanic island of  Santorini. Of Greek and Austrian heritage, Athanassakis has been photographing her island home, its architecture, and its myriad residents, all her life. Her work comprises an ongoing and lifelong meditation upon her stunningly unique surroundings . . . and herself in them. (All Athanassakis’s works are for sale, in limited edition archival prints: please contact her regarding gallery sales through her Weekly Hubris email address: athanassakis@gmx.at.)

    Doris, stunning images! The sunset is almost shocking, appearing amongst those severe whites and heavenly blues of the other photographs. It is easy to understand – having looked at your images – how Santorini got its magical reputation. Thank you – again!
